A New Song

O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
Psalms 96:1
It's been almost a whole month since my last post, somehow I haven't felt much like blogging. Maybe I've been down, winter blahs, I don't know really. The past few days I've felt somehow let down, can't really put my finger on it. Burdened maybe... So much knowledge has come our way this past month- our fellow Haitians suffering (my husband's family is Haitian-so although none of his family are there- it is like family), Daniel is having eye surgery Tuesday for the second time in his life, Tera is awaiting some teeth extractions when we complete all Daniel's appointments, Monday Fun started, Unit Week and then two birthdays this month. All of these things aren't bad yet they can tax your spirit. I have always had a talent for singing probably before I could talk, if you ask my mom. When I have weeks or months like this, I forget to sing. One of things that brings me comfort gets forgotten. I can get lost in a song yet I let the circumstances push out one of the things that helps me most.
Don't we do that in other ways- let our circumstances push us away from God's comforting arms instead of into them where we should be. "I can do it all by myself"- we know from past experience this is so far from the truth. Why is it when we need to study the Scripture and pray the most (outside of a crisis) we don't? When we know that singing our praise to Him, puts it all into perspective, why don't we? I really don't know-but I've found my song again-and I'm going to sing it. Find your "song" today or maybe it's time for you to let Him give you a "new song".
"I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemy. The Lord is my Rock!"
